Cowen Hamilton Secondary School reopens
The Ministry of Education wishes to advise that all classes have resumed at the Cowen Hamilton Secondary School.
The school was closed for a week after teachers and the administrative staff walked off the compound complaining about poor ventilation and the presence of dust in the ceiling, walls and the floors.
Parents, staff and teachers subsequently convened a meeting with the Parents Teachers’ Association (PTA) and they agreed to assist with cleanup efforts. The parents also agreed to allow the schoolchildren to resume classes on Monday 31st October, 2016.
Officials from the Education Facilities Company Limited (EFCL) have visited the school and have promised to continue monitoring the situation.
